Yesterday, reports emerged claiming Meghan Markle’s father, Thomas Markle, would no longer be walking his daughter down the aisle at the Royal Wedding due to embarrassment over selling photos to the press, as well as his recent severe heart attack.
Kensington Palace responded to the claims, releasing this statement to media:
"This is a deeply personal moment for Ms. Markle in the days before her wedding.
"She and Prince Harry ask again for understanding and respect to be extended to Mr. Markle in this difficult situation."
Now, it’s been reported that Thomas Markle actually DOES want to attend the wedding, however, has been scheduled to undergo serious heart surgery tomorrow.
"They [doctors] will go in and clear blockage, repair damage and put a stent where it is needed,” he told TMZ.
The publication also reported that Megan has recached out to her father to tell him “she loved him and was concerned for his health.”
